New Etsy Store and 99 Cent Auction


Hi! I will be creating my new etsy store in the next few days - look for BellaHannahJane (named after my daughter) to sell beautiful, original jewelry made from gemstones and real silver.


Also, I just relisted a bead auction - this one is a bargain at 99 cents. Go for it!

What to do with resistors?


My partner, Phil, gave me a bunch of resistors he had left over, and his son, Ben, asked me what kind of jewelry I would make with them. I made earrings with them, as seen in one of my photos below. Three of the pairs are on etsy right now, and I guess I'm a closet geek because I really like them! Here's a picture of another pair, that will go in an etsy jewelry shop I have in the works. I really like these ones because they are nice and summery - made with resistors, sunny seed beads and sterling findings.

New Beads








Just to let you know, I put two sets of beads on ebay today - sets that I made when I first started making beads. They are just simple fritted beads, but sometimes a person just likes a simple bead! Also, I'll be listing about 6 more sets on ebay tonight (ebay id sue_beads). Look at my etsy site, as well (suebeads.etsy.com) for some earring pairs and others. I also have some cool geeky resistor earrings for sale on etsy - check them out!
